Dear Governor Ehrlieh: 

In accordance with Public Safety Article 2, Subsection 307 and 308 of the Annotated 
Code of Maryland , the Maryland State Police is pleased to submit the 2003 Uniform Crime 
Report, Crime in Maryland . This publication represents the twenty-ninth annual repon. 

Maryland law enforcement agencies contribute crime data to Maryland State Police. 
Crime Reporting Program. The crime data, submitted monthly to the Central Records Division, 
is carefully validated and every effort is made to authenticate the accuracy and completeness of 
the reported data. 

The 2003 Crime in Maryland publication provides valuable information to law 
enforcement personnel, members of State government and interested parties, including; 
academic, civic, and research organizations. The information is beneficial to assess crime 
patterns and develop effective strategies to combat criminal acts. 

These crime statistics could not have been accurately compiled without the dedication 
and cooperation of all police agencies, sheriffs offices and other specialized law enforcement 
agencies throughout Maryland. The contributions of those agencies that provide statistical data 
to the Uniform Crime Reporting Program permits the Maryland State Police to develop a 
comprehensive picture of crime in Maryland. 



Sincerely, 




Thomas E. Hutcnins 
Superintendent

Executive Summary 



An annual release since 1975, Crime In Maryland pertains to 
crime statistics. This publication details crime (State, County, 
Municipality and by reporting agency) , clearance rates, arrests, law 
enforcement officers killed or assaulted and law enforcement 
employee data. The statewide Uniform Crime Reporting Program was 
initiated to report crime in Maryland to the National UCR program 
administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Maryland 
program has since increased its data collection with domestic 
violence, hate bias reporting and carjacking statistics. Carjacking 
and hate bias incident statistics are released in separate 
publications to facilitate detailed reporting. 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program collects information on 
crimes that were selected as an index to represent crime in the 
United States. These index crimes are murder, rape, robbery, 
aggravated assault, breaking or entering, larceny-theft and motor 
vehicle theft. Although not an indexed crime, the crime of arson is 
also collected. 

There were 248,194 total crime incidents reported in 2003 
representing a 5 percent decrease when compared to 2002 crime 
totals. Violent crime consisting of murder, rape, robbery and 
aggravated assault decreased 8 percent. The property crimes of 
breaking or entering, larceny-theft and motor vehicle theft 
experienced a 5 percent decrease. The index crime breakdown is as 
follows : 

Murder - 6% Breaking or Entering - 3% 

Rape - 4% Larceny-Theft - 7% 

Robbery - 3% Motor Vehicle Theft 1% 

Aggravated Assault - 12% Arson - 12% 

Total arrests for 2003 were 324,559 representing a 4 percent 
increase when compared to the total arrests for 2002. Of the total 
arrests 273,155 were adults, an increase of 3 percent while 51,404 
were juvenile arrests an increase of 9 percent. Of the total 
arrests there were 54,560 persons arrested for drug abuse 
violations, an increase of 6 percent. There were 23,560 persons 
arrested for driving while intoxicated, an increase of 2 percent. 

There were two officers killed in the line of duty in 2003. 
There were 3,742 officers assaulted which reflected a decrease of 
7 percent. This assault figure represents 25 percent of full time 
law enforcement officers employed. 

In 2003, there were 14,788 full time law enforcement officers 
employed which represents a less than 1 percent decrease. There 
were 2.7 full time law enforcement officers per 1,000 population.

INTRODUCTION 



BACKGROUND 

The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is one measure that 
has been taken in the establishment of an effective Criminal Justice 
Information System (CJIS) for the State. This particular phase 
focuses on the incidence of crime and law enforcement. It establishes 
a method to collect, evaluate and process uniform statistical data on 
crime statewide. The Maryland UCR Program provides the means to 
forward more valid data to the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 
a single agency and also to consolidate it into an annual report 
entitled Crime in Maryland . 



NATIONAL UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

The counterpart of the Maryland UCR Program is the National UCR 
Program which is under the direction of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation. The National Program resulted from a need for a 
uniform compilation of crime statistics nationwide. Uniform Crime 
Reports were first collected in 1930 after being developed by a 
committee of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. The 
lACP continues to serve in an advisory capacity to the FBI in the 
current operation of the Program, 

Crime statistics voluntarily submitted by individual law enforcement 
agencies from all fifty states are presented annually in the FBI's 
publication entitled Crime in the United States . 



MARYLAND UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

The FBI has actively assisted individual states in the development of 
State UCR Programs compatible with the National Program. Maryland 
took advantage of this assistance in 1972 and was able to develop its 
own program by 1975. 

The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program became operational 
January 1, 1975. This program consists of the uniform classification, 
review, compilation and analysis of crime statistics reported by all 
law enforcement agencies of the State pursuant to the guidelines and 
regulations prescribed by law. 

The responsibility and authority for the collection and dissemination 
of UCR data is assigned to the Department of State Police in 
accordance with Public Safety Article 2, subsection 307 and 308 of 
the Annotated Code of Maryland. 



PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES 

In keeping with the recommendation of the President's Commission on 
Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice, the Maryland UCR 
Program was planned for eventual growth into a complete and integrated 
offender based Criminal Justice Information System. Under this 
program, each offender arrested in Maryland is tracked through the 
entire criminal justice system from time of arrest, through the 
courts, to the correctional system where their exit (parole, 
expiration of sentence, etc.) will be recorded. In this manner, a 
complete "criminal history" on individual offenders will be available 
for use by the police, courts and correctional agencies in Maryland. 
In addition, statistical data derived from the CJIS Program will 
provide assistance in determining the overall efficiency of the 
Criminal Justice System in Maryland and will make effective management 
studies possible. 

The fundamental objectives of the Maryland UCR Program are: 

1. Inform the Governor, legislature, other 
governmental officials and the public as to the 
nature, magnitude and trends of the crime problem 
in Maryland. 

2. Provide law enforcement administrators with 
criminal statistics for administrative and 
operational use. 

3. Determine who commits crimes by age, sex, race and 
other attributes in order to find the proper focus 
for crime prevention and enforcement. 

4 . Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
workload and effectiveness of Maryland's Criminal 
Justice System. 

5. Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
effects of prevention and deterrence programs. 

6. Provide base data and statistics for research to 
improve the efficiency, effectiveness and 
performance of criminal justice agencies. 

7. Provide base data to assist in the assessment of 
social and other causes of crime for the 
development of theories of criminal behavior. 

8. Provide the FBI with complete UCR data to be 
included in the national crime reports. 



REPORTING PROCEDURES 

Under the Maryland UCR Program, law enforcement agencies submit 
specified Uniform Crime Reports. The necessary information for each 
of the required reports is gathered from each agencies record of 
complaints, investigations and arrests. 

Crime data and information is submitted by state, county and municipal 
law enforcement agencies monthly on the number of offenses known to 
them in the following crime categories: 

(1) Criminal Homicide 

(2) Forcible Rape 

(3) Robbery 

(4) Assault 

(5) Breaking or Entering 

(6) Larceny-theft 

(7) Motor Vehicle Theft 

(8) Arson* 

The count of offenses is taken from the record of complaints received 
by law enforcement agencies. This information comes from victims, 
witnesses, other sources or discovered by law enforcement during their 
own operation. Complaints determined by subsequent investigation to 
be unfounded are eliminated from count. The resulting number of 
"actual offenses known to law enforcement agencies" in these crime 
categories are reported without regard for whether anyone is arrested, 
stolen property is recovered, local prosecutive policy or any other 
consideration . 

Reported offenses are recorded by the municipality and county in which 
they occur. Municipal law enforcement agencies report those crimes 
which occur within the cities and state. County agencies report those 
crimes which occur in the counties outside the cities. 

A supplemental report is also submitted each month showing the value 
of stolen and recovered property, the type of property and the type 
of offense within a crime category in which it was taken. This report 
also shows the number of stolen vehicles recovered locally and by 
other jurisdictions. In addition, each agency reports the number of 
persons arrested by them or other agencies for crimes which have 
occurred within their jurisdiction. The arrest report also shows the 
age, sex and race of those arrested and the disposition of juveniles 
by the arresting agency. When applicable, supplemental reports are 
submitted regarding the persons, weapons and circumstances, etc., 
involved in homicides, domestic violence incidents, officer assaults 
and "carjackings". In addition, police employee data is collected on 
an annual basis. 



*Monthly arson reports are submitted for law enforcement agencies by the State 
Fire Marshal's Office and designated county agencies. 



VERIFICATION PROCESS 

A major concern in the collection of crime statistics for law 
enforcement agencies throughout the state is the uniformity and 
accuracy of data received. Program aides such as guides and 
instructional classes do not necessarily guarantee the accuracy of the 
reports submitted by the contributors, therefore, additional controls 
are necessary. 

Each report received by the UCR section is recorded, examined and 
verified for mathematical accuracy and possibly more important for 
reasonableness. The verification process includes numerous checks to 
ensure the validity of information. The elimination of duplicate 
reporting by individual contributors receives particular attention. 
Minor errors are corrected by telephone contact with the contributors. 
Substantial variations and errors are adjusted through personal 
contacts. The personal contacts are invaluable to the accuracy and 
quality of reporting. Field Records Representatives are engaged in 
a constant educational effort and as such, provide a vital link 
between the UCR Program and the contributor. 



POPULATION DATA 

The computation of crime rates as they appear in this report by 
municipality, county and state are based on the latest available 
population estimates for the year. These population estimates are 
provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation through the 
cooperation and assistance of the United States Bureau of Census. 



LIMITATIONS OF A UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

Information currently collected by the Maryland Program is generally 
the same as that gathered by the National System and the methods of 
classifying and scoring offenses and arrests are the same. This 
readily enables comparisons with other states and with the nation, as 
a whole. However, there are limitations to the information collected 
which should be clearly understood before any conclusions are drawn 
from the UCR data presented in this report. 

The main goal of the UCR Program is to furnish police administrators 
with a measure of their activities and operational problems as 
indicated by the number of reported offenses, arrests, clearances, 
etc . 

A first step in the control of crime is to ascertain the true 
dimensions of the problem. However, present statistics as gathered 
by the UCR Program measure neither the real incidence of crime or the 
full amount of economic loss to victims. Information regarding number 
of offenses, clearances, value and type of property stolen and 
recovered property are collected only for the eight Part I offenses. 
For Part II offenses the only information submitted is the number of 
arrests for these crimes. Consequently, there is no record of the 



actual number of these offenses occurring, or is there a calculation 
made for property loss. 

The Crime Index does not explicitly take into account the varying 
degrees of seriousness of its seven components (excluding arson) . 
Each crime receives the same weight as it is added to the index, 
consequently, an auto theft is counted the same as a murder and an 
aggravated assault is weighed equally with an attempted breaking or 
entering. Any review of crime must consider the volume, rate and 
trend of each offense that comprises the index and the relationship 
between these seven crimes*. 

The Maryland and National Uniform Crime Reporting Programs are 
designed to measure offenses committed and persons arrested. 
Difficulties can arise if this distinction is not kept clearly in 
mind. Crimes relate to events, arrests relate to persons. Unlike 
traffic violations where there is usually one event, violation and 
offender, a single criminal act can involve several crimes, offenders 
and victims. Relating specific crimes to a criminal or offense to 
evaluate characteristics of those arrested, is generally beyond the 
scope of the present Uniform Crime Reporting System. 

Juvenile crime and arrest statistics, because of their nature, are 
another area of misunderstanding. Many juvenile offenders are handled 
informally, as a consequence, inaccurate or incomplete recording of 
the event or action may result. Procedures for handling juveniles 
vary between departments more so than the handling of adult offenders. 
Furthermore, the degree of juvenile involvement in cleared offenses 
is probably seriously misunderstood because the juvenile clearance 
indicator is recorded only when juveniles are exclusively involved. 
When both adults and juveniles are subjects in a clearance, the 
juvenile participation is not reported. 

The preceding comments should not be viewed as an indictment of the 
Uniform Crime Reporting Program which, admittedly, is designed for the 
operational requirements of law enforcement agencies. While the 
current method of gathering and reporting crime and arrest data 
provide a less than complete picture of criminality in our society, 
the FBI has designed the National Incident Based Reporting System to 
address these limitations. 



*Arson is not used at this time in computing the Crime Index. 



CRIME FACTORS 



statistics compiled under the Uniform Crime Reporting Program from 
data submitted by Maryland law enforcement agencies projects a 
statewide view of crime. Awareness of the presence of certain crime 
factors which may influence the resulting volume and type of 
statistics presented is necessary if fair and equitable conclusions 
are to be drawn. These crime influencing factors are present to some 
degree in every community. Their presence affects in varying degrees 
the crime experience of that community. Attempts at comparison of 
crime figures between communities should not be made without first 
considering the individual factors present in each community. 

Crime, as an outgrowth of society, remains a social problem of grave 
concern. The police are limited in their role to its suppression and 
detection. As stated by the President's Commission on Law 
Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice in their report 
"The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society" (1967 - Page 92): 

"But the fact that the police deal daily with crime does 
not mean that they have unlimited power to prevent it, or 
reduce it, or deter it. The police did not create and 
cannot resolve the social conditions that stimulate 
crime. They did not start and cannot stop the convulsive 
social changes that are taking place in America. They do 
not enact the laws that they are required to enforce, nor 
do they dispose of the criminals they arrest. The police 
are only one part of the criminal justice system; the 
criminal justice system is only one part of the 
government; and the government is only one part of 
society. In so far as crime is a social phenomenon, 
crime prevention is the responsibility of every part of 
society. The criminal process is limited to case by case 
operations, one criminal or one crime at a time." 

Listed below are some of the conditions which affect the type and 
volume of crime that occurs from place to place: 

Density and size of the community population 
and the metropolitan area of which it is a 
part . 

Composition of the population with particular 
reference to age, sex and race. 

Economic status of the population. 



Relative stability of the population including 
number and ratio of seasonal visitors/ 
residents, commuters and other transients. 

Climate and seasonal weather conditions. 

Educational, recreational and religious 
characteristics . 

Standards governing appointments to the police 
force , 

Policies of the prosecuting officials and the 
courts . 

Attitude of the public toward law enforcement 
problems . 

The administrative and investigative efficiency 
of the local law enforcement agency, including 
the degree of adherence to crime reporting 
standards . 

Organization and cooperation of adjoining and 
overlapping police jurisdictions. 



CRIME INDEX OFFENSES 

The crime counts listed in this publication are actual offenses 
established by police investigation. When police receive a complaint 
of a crime and the follow-up investigation discloses no crime 
occurred, it is "unfounded". In 2003, police investigations that were 
"unfounded" represented 3 percent of the complaints concerning index 
offenses, ranging from less than 1 percent in the aggravated assault 
category to 15 percent in both the rape and robbery categories. When 
compared to 2002, there was 1 percent "unfounded" in the aggravated 
assault category and 22 percent in the rape category. 

A total of 248,194 actual Index Offenses were reported to law 
enforcement agencies in Maryland during the calendar year 2003. This 
represents a decrease of 5 percent when compared to the 2002 total of 
261,965 Crime Index Offenses. 

An analysis of Index Offenses by month in 2003 shows that October had 
the highest frequency of occurrence and February had the lowest, the 
same as in -2002 . 

The Crime Index Offenses represent the most common problem to law 
enforcement. They are serious crimes by their nature, volume, or 
frequency of occurrence. They are categorized as Violent Crimes, 
which includes Murder, Forcible Rape, Robbery and Aggravated Assault, 
or as Property Crimes which includes Breaking or Entering, Larceny- 
Theft and Motor Vehicle Theft. 



VIOLENT CRIME 

Violent Crimes involve the element of personal confrontation between 
the perpetrator and the victim; consequently, they are considered more 
serious than Property Crimes because of their very nature. These 
offenses accounted for 16 percent of the total Crime Index for 2003, 
the same as in 2002. Violent Crime decreased 8 percent compared to 
2002. 

Analyzing the Violent Crimes by month reveals October had the greatest 
frequency of occurrence, while December had the lowest. In 2002 
October had the greatest frequency of occurrence, while February had 
the lowest. 



PROPERTY CRIMES 

The number of Property Crimes reported during 2003, was more than 5 
times greater than the number of Violent Crimes reported. As a group. 
Property Crimes made up 84 percent of the total Crime Index in 2003, 
the same as 2002. Property Crime decreased 5 percent in 2003. A 
monthly analysis showed October had the highest frequency of 
occurrence and February the lowest, the same as in 2002. 



RATES 

Crime Rates relate the incidence of crime to the resident population. 
Many other factors which may contribute to the volume and type of 
crime in a given jurisdiction are not incorporated here, but are shown 
in the section entitled "Crime Factors", 

In 2003, the Crime Rate for Maryland was 4,505.3 victims for every 
100,000 population. This represents a 6 percent decrease in the Crime 
Rate when compared to the 2002 rate of 4,799.5. 

The 2003 Crime Rate for the Violent Crime group was 703.9 victims per 
100,000 inhabitants, a 9 percent decrease compared with the 2002 rate 
of 774.8. The Property Crime group had a rate of 3,801.4 victims, a 
6 percent decrease when compared to the 2002 rate of 4,024.8. 



CLEARANCES 

For Uniform Crime Reporting purposes, a crime is cleared when police 
have identified the offender, have evidence to charge him and actually 
take him into custody. Solutions of crimes are also recorded in 
exceptional instances where some element beyond police control 
precludes formal charges against the offender, such as the victim's 
refusal to prosecute or local prosecution is declined because the 
subject is being prosecuted elsewhere for a crime committed in another 
jurisdiction. The arrest of one person can clear several crimes or 
several persons may be arrested in the process of solving one crime. 

Maryland Law Enforcement Agencies cleared 22 percent of all Index 
Offenses reported to them in 2003, compared to 23 percent in 2002. 

The Violent Crimes recorded a 51 percent clearance rate in 2003, the 
same as in 2002. The Property Crime group experienced a 17 percent 
clearance rate in 2003, compared to 18 percent in 2002. 

Considered individually the 2003 Violent Crime clearance rate was 
determined to be 55 percent of the Murders, 52 percent of the Rapes, 
26 percent of the Robberies and 65 percent of the Aggravated Assaults. 
The Property Crime clearance rates were 17 percent for Breaking or 
Entering, 19 percent for Larceny-Theft and 10 percent for Motor 
Vehicle Theft. 

The relatively high clearance rate for Violent Crimes as compared to 
Non-Violent Property Crimes is in part attributable to the volume 
difference between the two. Property Crime volume is much greater 
than that of Violent Crime and police investigation of Violent Crime 
is usually more intense. While the element of direct contact between 
the victim and perpetrator, as well as witness identification also 
contributes to this higher rate of solution for Violent Crime, stealth 
is involved to a greater degree in the Property Crime, 



10 



JUVENILE CLEARANCES 

A juvenile clearance is the clearance of an offense in which all of 
the offenders involved were under the age of 18. If even one of the 
offenders was over 17 years of age, the clearance of that offense is 
not considered a juvenile clearance. In 2003, such juvenile 
clearances represented 20 percent of all clearances, compared to 19 
percent in 2002. 

Juvenile clearances in the Violent Crime category represented 16 
percent of the total cleared in 2003, compared to 15 percent in 2002. 
The clearances in Violent Crimes are; Homicide 5 percent. Rape 10 
percent, Robbery 19 percent and Aggravated Assault 15 percent. 

In the Property Crime category, clearances involving Juvenile 
offenders represented 23 percent of the total cases cleared in 2003, 
compared to 21 percent in 2002. The clearances in Property crimes 
are; Burglary 22 percent, Larceny-Theft 22 percent and Motor Vehicle 
Theft 28 percent. 



STOLEN PROPERTY VALUE 

The total value of Property Stolen during 2003 was $382,769,856 which 
represents a 7 percent increase from 2002. Recovered Property 
amounted to $162,258,451 which is 42 percent of the total stolen, 
resulting in a $220,511,405 property loss to victims in the State of 
Maryland during 2003. This property loss represents a less than 15 
percent increase when compared to the property loss in 2002.

MURDER 



MURDER 



Murder and non-negligent manslaughter is the willful (non-negligent) 
killing of one human being by another. 

VOLUME AND RATE 

During 2003, a total of 525 murders were reported, this represents 
a 6 percent decrease over 2002. Murder accounted for 1 percent of 
all violent crime and .2 percent of the crime index. In 2003, there 
were 9.5 murders per 100,000 population, 

ANALYSIS OF MURDER 

In 2003, 290 murders were cleared with 5 percent of these clearances 
involving only juvenile offenders. A total of 324 persons were 
arrested for murder during 2003. A breakdown of persons arrested 
for murder was 94 percent male, 6 percent female, 13 percent 
juvenile, 81 percent black, 19 percent white and less than 1 
percent consisting of American Indian and Asian. 

During 2003, 307 of the murder victims were in the 20 to 45 age 
group representing 58 percent of the total. 

Handguns were used in 66 percent of the reported murders in 2003. 
This represents a 4 percent increase in their use when compared to 
the handgun use in 2002. 

The next most used weapon was a knife accounting for 14 percent of 
the reported murders in 2003. This represents a 14 percent increase 
when compared to 2002. 

Drug related murders accounted for 6 percent of the total, as 
compared to 7 percent in 2002. 

Family members as offenders in murder accounted for 10 percent while 
boyfriend or girlfriend (those not cohabitating) reflects 2 percent 
of the total reported. There was a 7 percent decrease in family 
related murders while boyfriend or girlfriend murders increased 80 
percent. Additionally, an acquaintance is listed in 13 percent of 
the murders reported in 2003. Strangers and unknown relationships 
accounted for two other large categories, 4 percent and 82 percent 
respectively. 

In 52 percent of the murders, the offenders are unknown and not 
described. When the race of the victim and offender is known the 
offender is most often someone of the same race.

Executive Summary 



An annual release since 1975, Crime In Maryland pertains to 
crime statistics. This publication details crime (State, County, 
Municipality and by reporting agency) , clearance rates, arrests, law 
enforcement officers killed or assaulted and law enforcement 
employee data. The statewide Uniform Crime Reporting Program was 
initiated to report crime in Maryland to the National UCR program 
administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Maryland 
program has since increased its data collection with domestic 
violence, hate bias reporting and carjacking statistics. Carjacking 
and hate bias incident statistics are released in separate 
publications to facilitate detailed reporting. 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program collects information on 
crimes that were selected as an index to represent crime in the 
United States. These index crimes are murder, rape, robbery, 
aggravated assault, breaking or entering, larceny-theft and motor 
vehicle theft. Although not an indexed crime, the crime of arson is 
also collected. 

There were 248,194 total crime incidents reported in 2003 
representing a 5 percent decrease when compared to 2002 crime 
totals. Violent crime consisting of murder, rape, robbery and 
aggravated assault decreased 8 percent. The property crimes of

DOMESTIC 
VIOLENCE 



DOMESTIC VIOLENCE 



The Domestic Violence Act of 1994 mandated that all law enforcement 
agencies in Maryland submit copies of their police reports of 
incidences involving domestic violence to the Maryland State Police. 
Through the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program, a revised 
Battered Spouse data collection form was created. This new form 
allowed for the collection of more data, which is based upon a 
revised definition of a domestic violence incident under the 
guidelines of the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program. 

Under the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program the definition 
for a domestic violence incident is considered "An individual who 
has received deliberate physical injury or is in fear of imminent 
deliberate physical injury from a current or former spouse or a 
current or former cohabitant. This includes a homosexual 

relationship . " In addition, a domestic violence incident in the 
Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program is considered to be any 
crime against: 

• A married person living with their spouse. 

• A married person estranged from their spouse. 

• A male and female in an intimate relationship who 
are not married to each other and who are cohabiting 
or had cohabited. 

• Individuals of the same sex in an intimate 
relationship who are cohabiting or had cohabited. 

It should be noted that prior to 1996 the statistical information 
collected was only on assaults to domestic partner and did not 
include same sex in an intimate relationship who are cohabiting or 
had cohabited. The following information gives a more comprehensive 
report that includes statistics based on the revised definition of 
domestic violence including all crimes.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CRIMES 

There are limitations to the information collected which should be 
clearly understood before any conclusions are drawn from the data 
presented in this report. Procedures for handling domestic violence 
crimes vary between law enforcement agencies and counties of 
occurrence . 

The current method of collecting domestic violence information for 
this report provides less than a complete picture. There is at 
present, no other statewide informational system in general use 
gathering these statistics from law enforcement agencies that will 

more accurately perform this task. 

The Baltimore Police Department was unable to provide any 2002 or 
2003 Domestic Violence Statistics to the Maryland Uniform Crime 
Reporting Program due to data conversion. Therefore, there was a 
total of 17,860 domestic violence crimes reported in 2003 as 
compared to 18,904 crimes in 2002, resulting in a 6 percent 
decrease. The breakdown is as follows:

Analysis 

In 2003, 43 percent of all domestic violent crimes occurred between 
the hours of 7:00 P.M. to 1:00 A.M., inclusive, the same as in 
2002. Thirty-eight percent of domestic violent crimes occurred 
during Saturday and Sunday. When combining these two categories 
this would indicate that an intensive period for domestic violent 
crimes occur between 7:00 P.M. and 1:00 A.M. on Saturday and Sunday. 



* Baltimore Police Department was unable to provide any 2002 & 2003 Domestic Violence statistics 
to the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program due to data conversion.

CLEARANCES 

There are two ways of clearing a case. One is by making an arrest 
and charging the person (s) with the offense. The second is known as 
an exceptional clearance. Exceptional clearance means the police 
know the identity and location of the person (s) who committed the 
offense and have enough information to arrest them. However, there 
is some reason beyond their control that prevents them from making 
the arrest. 

The arrest and exceptional clearances reported reflect the 
disposition at the time the domestic violence report form was 
forwarded to the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. These reports are 
not updated, therefore, other arrests and exceptional clearances may 
occur but would not be reflected in the following totals.

* An audit review of the Baltimore Police Department UCR Crime Reporting System for 1999 
resulted in the reclassification of recorded UCR crimes reported for 1999. 
** Statewide agencies report offenses but do not identify county of occurrence. 
*** Baltimore Police Department was unable to provide any 2002 & 2003 Domestic Violence 
statistics to the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program due to data conversion.

INDEX OFFENSE DATA 



The tables contained within this section were designed to provide 
quick reference to statistical crime information relative to the 
different reporting areas of the State of Maryland. 

The tables are broken down by Region, Within each Region 
information is listed in County name sequence and is further 
detailed to show the activity experienced by individual police 
agencies. The general identifying descriptions which indicate the 
reporting areas are listed and defined as follows: 

Regional Total - This line indicates the total activity 
of all the Counties within the indicated 
Region. 

County Total - This line indicates the total activity 
of all reporting Agencies within the 
indicated County. 

Sheriff - This line indicates the total activity 
reported by Sheriff's Offices. This 
includes activity which may have 
occurred within the corporate limits of 
towns in that County. 

County Police - This line indicates the total activity 
Department reported by County Police Departments. 

This includes activity which may have 
occurred within the corporate limits of 
towns in that County.

of municipal, county and state law enforcement agencies. This

with crime rates for the county and region totals. Arson offenses 
are listed opposite the agency reporting the Arson and are not 
computed in the total offenses or crime rates.

MARYLAND 
ARREST DATA 



ARREST DATA 



The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program requires the submission of 
monthly reports of persons arrested in the state. A record of arrest 
activity for both Part I and Part II crimes are received from state, 
county and municipal law enforcement agencies showing the age, sex and 
race of persons arrested. Traffic arrests, except Driving While 
Intoxicated, are not reported. A total of 324,559 arrests for Part I 
and Part II criminal offenses were reported during 2003. In 2002, 
there were 311,891 arrests which represents a 4 percent increase. 
Based on 2003 population estimates, there were 5,891.5 arrests per 
100,000 population in Maryland. The arrest rate for 2002 was 5,714.2 
representing a 3 percent arrest rate increase. 

A person is counted on the monthly arrest report each time they are 
arrested. This means that a person may be arrested several times 
during a given month and would be counted each time. However, a person 
is counted only once each time regardless of the number of crimes or 
charges involved. A juvenile is counted as "arrested" when the 
circumstances are such that, if the juvenile were an adult, an arrest 
would have been counted or when police or other official action is 
taken beyond a mere interview, warning or admonishment. 

Arrest figures do not indicate the number of individuals arrested or 
summoned since, as stated above, one person may be arrested several 
times during the month. However, arrest information is useful in 
measuring the extent of law enforcement activities in a given 
geographic area as well as providing an index for measuring the 
involvement in criminal acts by the age, sex and race of perpetrators. 

During 2003, 15 percent of all reported arrests were for Crime Index 
Offenses, compared to 16 percent in 2002. Analysis of Crime Index 
Arrest Data indicates that larceny-theft comprised the highest 
percentage of all arrests for Crime Index offenses, with 50 percent of 
the total in 2003, up from 49 percent in 2002. The drug abuse, other 
assaults, driving under the influence and disorderly conduct 
categories recorded the highest percentage of arrests for Part II 
offenses. These offenses accounted for 45 percent of the total arrests 
for Part II offenses in 2003.

A further evaluation indicates that arrests for robbery and aggravated

violent crimes with 29 and 65 percent, respectively. 

PROPERTY CRIME ARRESTS

Index Offenses and 12 percent of the total arrests in 2003, compared to 
74 percent of all arrests for Crime Index Offenses and 12 percent of the 
total arrests in 2002. 

The highest percentage of property crime arrests, 66 percent, continues 
to occur in the larceny-theft category.

A total of 402 gambling arrests were reported during 2003. In 2002, 256 
persons were arrested for Gambling violations resulting in a 57 percent 
increase .

I and Part II arrests in 2003. Persons under the age of 18 made up 20 
percent of all Gambling arrests in 2003, compared to 22 percent in 2002.

LAW 

ENFORCEMENT 

OFFICERS 

KILLED AND 

ASSAULTED 



LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED 



Two law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in Maryland 
during 2003. The following summary is based on information provided 
by their agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Federal 
Bureau of Investigation conducts in-depth investigation of these 
tragic incidents in which law enforcement officers have made the 
supreme sacrifice in the performance of their duties. 



September 13, 2003 

A 28 year veteran of the Montgomery County Police Department died as 
a result of injuries he received in an automobile accident. The 51 
year old officer was on patrol when for unknown reasons he lost 
control of his vehicle and struck a tree. 



November 15, 2003 

A 19 year veteran of the Prince George's County Police Department 
died after sustaining injuries in a traffic accident. The officer 
was driving in heavy rain when he lost control of his vehicle 
striking a tree. The officer died 10 days after the accident. 



201 



LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ASSAULTED 



The following information is based on a detailed monthly collection 
of data in the Uniform Crime Reporting System regarding the problem 
of assaults on local, county and state law enforcement officers. 
The large number of reported assaults on sworn officers is in part 
due to a prevalent attitude of disrespect for law enforcement in 
certain elements of our society. 

A total of 3,742 law enforcement officers in Maryland were victims 
of assault in the line of duty during 2003, compared to 4,035 
assaults during 2002 resulting in a 7 percent decrease. 

The rate of assaults on law enforcement officers for the state was 
25 assaults per every 100 sworn officers in 2003. In 2002 the rate 
of assaults on law enforcement officers was 27 assaults per every 
100 sworn officers. 

Physical force was used in 84 percent of all assaults on police 
officers. 

The greatest number of assaults, 31 percent, occurred while 
officers were responding to disturbance calls (family disputes, man 
with a gun, etc.), 29 percent of assaults on police officers 
occurred between 10:00 P.M. and 2:00 A.M. 

A total of 3,612 assaults on law enforcement officers were cleared 
during 2003 amounting to a 97 percent clearance rate.

EMPLOYEE 

DATA 



LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE DATA 



POLICE EMPLOYEE DATA 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program in Maryland incorporates the 
collection of pertinent data relating to the police of the State. 
Information regarding police employee strength is discussed in this 
section. 

This information is submitted by county, municipal and state law 

enforcement agencies and compiled on an annual basis. Specific 

information concerning the number of law enforcement employees 
reflects the status as of October 31, 2003. 

LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE RATES 

In 2003, the average number of full-time law enforcement employees 
remained unchanged from 2002. Law enforcement employees, (state, 
county and municipal) including civilian employees, amounted to 3.5 
for each 1,000 inhabitants of the state. The rate based on sworn 
personnel only (excluding civilians), amounted to 2.7 per 1,000 
population . 

The ratio of law enforcement employees per 1,000 population in any 
given area or municipality is influenced by a number of factors, 
much the same as the crime rate. The determination of law 
enforcement strength for a given county or municipality is based on 
factors such as population density, size and character of the 
community, geographic location, proximity to metropolitan areas and 
other conditions which exist in the area generating the need for law 
enforcement services. Employee rates also differ among agencies 
since, in particular, there is a wide variation of the 
responsibilities and level of activity within various law 
enforcement agencies. The information in this section relates to 
reported police employee strength and should not be interpreted as 
recommended strength for any area. 

CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES 

The personnel of each law enforcement agency differ as to the 
demands and responsibilities placed before them. Many police 
officers are fully occupied with clerical tasks and are not free to 
perform active police duties. Some police administrators use 
civilians in this capacity, thus freeing the sworn personnel for 
actual police related services. 

As of October 31, 2003, 4,502 or 23 percent of the total number of 
police employees in Maryland were civilians.
